Looking for the chance to see some of Dr. Gaither's work and possibly the artist herself this weekend? You will have two opportunities to do just that!
Dr. Gaither will be a part of the African American Heritage Festival in downtown Baltimore beginning tomorrow and running through Sunday. Her work will be a part of a special display highlighting African American artists. At the time of this posting, I am not sure which works will be included in the exhibition. I know she was finishing one of her social justice pieces this week which I know was being considered for inclusion and I have heard her mention several other options, all coming from her social justice quilts. Many of the quilts on the list have not been seen here in Maryland before.
If you get a chance to visit one of these two events, please drop us a line and let us know what you thought of the events. If you are unable to attend, I will post images and stories from the weekend on the blog next week.
